Ok, as I type this, there is water on the floors of my kitchen (a little), laundry room, and pantry (was a lot more but some of it has dried) and the water to the house is turned off.
The 3 plumbers I called could not fit me in today. A friend who is a realtor sent her handyman over to take a look.
When he found out we hadn't cleaned out our septic tank in the 10 years we've been here, he explained that was a BAD idea.
I only had to call 2 septic people to get one of them to promise to try to get here today.
Waiting to hear back from them.
Why does this kind of stuff happen on days I plan to get massive amounts of work done? :-)
